Now that summer’s pretty much over, if you’re looking for a Vitamin D top up, sneak a peek at our October half term holiday deals...

What’s the weather like in The Gambia in October?

With average highs of 32°C, you’ll certainly find heat during an October holiday to The Gambia. The rainy season has just drawn to a close, so the landscape is much more lush and green than you’d find visiting later in the year/into the new year.

An all-inclusive holiday

If you love the carefree feeling of an all-inclusive escape, check out Ocean Bay Hotel. Located along one a beautiful stretch of beach in The Gambia, and boasting a friendly atmosphere. The restaurant area is great for families and offers a buffet service, or there is the option of an à la carte menu offering Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.


A family-friendly holiday

Kombo Beach Hotel is a wonderful choice for families looking to relax, where the adults can sit by the pool or enjoy a book under the shade of a palm, and the children can entertain themselves in the playground, playing pool games, and having fun with the full-time entertainment team.


A peaceful, boutique holiday

With stunning, uninterrupted views of the Atlantic from burnished cliffs, a stay at the boutique luxury Ngala Lodge is a rewarding experience. An adults-only property, you can relax in the tranquil gardens, at one of the two pools; one an infinity and the other surrounded by tropical plants, or indulge in the excellent cuisine offered here.

A ‘something a bit different’ holiday

You don’t have to soak up the sunshine from around a pool or at the beach, why not hop across the Gambian border into Senegal, and visit Fathala Wildlife Reserve? Although there is a plunge pool for when you need a refreshing dip, opting for a game drive around the reserve is a fantastic day out. See rhinos, giraffes, monkeys, and more, before heading back to your luxury safari tent. This can also be included as a 3 or 4-night add-on to a Gambia holiday.
